Astrology Marketer Gianpaolo DiCocco DiCocco Fail #1
Elizabeth II of
England will die by the end of September, 2017.'
early 2017 astrology
marketer GianPaolo DiCocco, sitting in his mom's house in
Pasadena, California gained attention and traffic by
the death of Queen Elizabeth by the end of September 2017. He
was so certain, he
made three different videos emphasizing that it would be true.
By October he had to delete them all.
three YouTube videos were loaded with his usual portentous,
bamboozling astrology talk. His gullible public, dazzled by
'arcane' astrological terms he tosses around, picked up from
books, ate it up.
In typical bombastic fashion he named
his 3 death-predicting videos a "Trilogy" and
the soon-to-bomb ersatz prophecy "historic."
He has now purged his fail from the internet, but thousands
remember it, and we are sure some copies will be turning up.
and blocking comments are how "voice-of-the-cosmos-who-makes-astrology-great-again"manages
his prediction fails. Since that new fail DiCocco
has turned to inventing the birth date/time of Jesus
Christ. The date is a complete mystery to mankind, with even
scholars disagreeing about it for 20 centuries and only able
speculate. So this new shtick is more
comfortable for DiCocco. Making a date "fit" an individual, even if
it's a total guess and not correct, is an easy trick and any astrologer
can invent these propositions. It's perfect for DiCocco because it
can't fail or be
disproved and he can appear marvelous, to the gullible, for "figuring
it out." DiCocco
got big attention at his YouTube channel by making this
prediction. He loves predicting death and dire events -- sensational
things -- for the attention it brings him. Though he deleted the three
videos after the fail, some video amalgamators still show artifacts of
"historic" prediction, complete with a deleted video icon:
DiCocco didn't post just one
video predicting the death of Queen Elizabeth by Sept 2017, but three.
He was Very Certain!
Below: Note his 3rd video predicting the Queen's death
came out in early 2017. While arguing with commenters DiCocco said "It's only a
miss if she's still alive by Sept."
which referred to September 2017. Some people complained about his
failed prediction and its recklessness. DiCocco berated them, saying
September 2017 had not arrived yet. He says: "A lot of fine tuning goes into
this to predict exact dates, which is not easy. Definitely
not a miss yet. As I said, it's only a miss if she's still alive by
late Sept. . It really helps to LISTEN."
So apparently the sudden Master Astrologer worked really hard on this
one. But all three videos had to come down, and these posts
viewable on YouTube. When DiCocco's predictions fail
he either re-writes text associated with the video, or simply deletes
the whole thing, to "make astrology great again." Alternatively, he may
claim "the birth data was flawed." Yet he is supposed to be the Voice
of the Cosmos and can even know things using Tarot cards. His misses
keep piling up. Below are some of
the posters who noticed his Queen's death miss and complained on his
thread about it:
DiCocco Fail #2
Le Pen will win the
DiCocco predicted a Le Pen Win multiple times, including in 2 YouTube videos.
In the Facebook post below DiCocco, who is the only one who
can "make astrology great," predicts Le Pen anew. He also got
"Le Pen wins" from his Tarot Card reading (just to
snide, pompous DiCocco in his dime store costume hat made sure to mock
for predicting Le Pen -- just before he himself jumped on the Le Pen
DiCocco mocked other astrologers for predicting Le
Pen. Above he puts the word "astrologer" in quotes for Barry Goddard.
He states "I'll tell you right now that Le Pen's natal charts and
transits...do NOT look good at all for her." So he's always
flip-flopping. After he saw others predicting Le Pen, DiCocco jumped on
the Le Pen
bandwagon with both feet. He made two
videos predicting her.
But in the above post
the "voice of the cosmos" wants to wait
until it's narrowed down to two before he tries a prediction.
mocking Goddard for an analysis he called "very poor and scanty"
DiCocco placed huge significance on a trifle like Le Pen's
Fortune," a mathematical point proposed by an ancient Arabic
mathematician-astrologer (along with hundreds of other "parts") that
no experience watching and which is not even
reliable significator of external things by those who have
studied Arabic Parts. (And as usual, he
points to no examples where the P-O-F
figured in other cases or election wins, but simply asserts.)
nervous to predict, DiCocco tried to put an out into his
some fail-deniability, by stating there might be "election fraud."
However, this won't fly, for the purpose of an astrological prediction
to say what
happens -- in this case who wins--
along with whatever factors the astrologer may see
involved, in the picture, or the background such as "fraud,"
he was wrong DiCocco, The Voice of the Cosmos who knows 'the
true astrology that always predicts,' said his fail was "not
a big deal whatsoever." The only one who can "make
astrology great" now
takes shelter with astrologers
he attacked and mocked, saying 'They were also wrong!'
In two Freudian slips he says: "The
show must go on" and "Now
to carry on with business
DiCocco is now getting slaughtered so badly in Comments for the two
videos he had to disable comments. Ever
the slippery eel, the "Voice of the Cosmos" now claims he had
faulty birth data. (How incompetent! How negligent!) Speaking of
himself in the Third Person DiCocco writes: "GianPaolo
predicted Le Pen;
however, due to new evidence, that prediction is null and void. BOTH
candidates have faulty birth data." No
honest astrologer would affirm there are major differences between the
two Le Pen charts, one at 11 am and the other 11:20 (the one
DiCocco negligently used). They have the same planets-in-houses (except
Pluto in 11th vs. 12th) and the same house rulers. Both
candidates would have been
having the same planetary transits and progressions on election day and
Pen would have still had transiting Mercury conjunct her
Saturn on election day (a giveaway: you get bad news and goodbyes
then), and Macron would have had the same raft of positive
transits on election day, including Jupiter all over his Pluto during
this period. If
anything, the 11 a.m. Le Pen chart (which DiCocco did not use), is the
stronger natal chart as it features a Sun/Mercury sextile to her
ascendant. There are no substantive differences that would
caused DiCocco to predict differently, as his prediction was just
copycatting other astrologers in the first place.
Fact: The Kook makes extreme attacks against Locational
Julian Lee who he calls "negligent" for having an incorrect birth year
for him, though Lee sincerely tried to help him and was not paid.
Notwithstanding that faulty data Lee's prediction
of career improvements came true for DiCocco in California,
DiCocco acknowledges he attained the best position
and pay of
his life, plus went from being a nobody to being famous in a
career of astrological pundit and enfant
In one of his first videos DiCocco dances around his
bedroom in Pasadena with a toilet plunger while wrapped in the American
flag and threatens viewers with
it. Was it a sign? Another
alibi used by DiCocco and his groupies is "Le Pen really won."
They spin DiCocco's miss with lines like: "Le Pen didn't want to win, so
she threw the election by making herself unpleasant in the
debate, so she really won" or "Macron didn't really win
because their was fraud" etc. But the goal of the
astrologer is, again, to predict "what
happens" in this messy, complex world. Thus an astrologer
would say: "Macron
wins, through fraud, a band plays a marching tune, the weather is
sunny." Or "Le
Pen loses, and it was because she wanted to, a dog barks"
or "Macron wins, and
it's because he had money and media behind him, but he's really a body
double" etc. DiCocco's goal
was predict who
whatever might be the surrounding factors of that win.
Fun fact: Knowing he merely lucked out with his "big" Trump prediction,
DiCocco is insecure in his use of astrology. With
the French election just two days away and feeling nervous about
his prediction, he resorted to Tarot card reading (suddenly a Tarot
says his Tarot reading predicts a Le Pen win. Still got it wrong!
Will Runes be his next specialty and forte?
DiCocco Fail #3
DiCocco stated in a video in Jan of 2017: ...with
all the increased talk about Russian hacking these days you can be
assured that Snowden will be put in the
spotlight once again soon...I believe
we're going to see a lot of talk and news about Edward Snowden
during Trump's presidency"
It didn't happen.
DiCocco obviously considered this "lot of talk" about
Snowden to be imminent, or as he says, "soon." His constant
is to make predictions that come true soon and he announces them with
urgency. But 2017 has now passed and Snowden was
remarkably absentfrom the
news during 2017.
Moreover Donald Trump, who made tweets about Snowden years prior to his
presidency, has been very quiet
about Snowden in 2017.
Meanwhile DiCocco said nothing about most news events that dominated
2017. The Kook appears to simply look for trends in the news
use logic for making his "astrology predictions," such as the "Russian
hacking" thing. But that's not astrological skill. Following
is some of the absurd manuscript from this video which demonstrates how
DiCocco likes to 1) keep things vague, and 2) state both ends of a
(contradictory things) so he can somehow come out "right" no
matter what happens:
DiCocco, from his video "On the
Death of Edward Snowden: An Astrology Case Study"
labeled Snowden as the Antichrist
which actually you know it might be a little bit
harsh okay and I apologize in advance...this is a really bad
seed we have dealing with here okay...
DiCocco likes labeling people in extreme ways like "antichrist" and
"bad seed." He has also called astrologer Julian Lee "bad
and "Satanic" and worse.
can all expect something to develop over the next four years
regarding Snowden for sure...I
can tell you right now that we'll be seeing some major
news about him come out over the next four years
Pretty safe to predict "something will happen over the next four years"
-- isn't it.
"...and frankly his ultimate
demise does not look pretty at all
okay....we can see
nature of his work is once again of a dastardly nature...he's either
feeding information to foreign organizations or
terrorist groups...it's also possible that
he could be leaking Russian secrets out as well so in reality he's not
even safe in Russia...I discussed more about
his terrorist inclinations
have we seen terrorist inclinations in Edward Snowden?
"... he's not safe in
any foreign country...
Snowden has been safe for a long time in a
a restriction on foreign travel this
retrograde Saturn is also... (blah blah)... so we know that
he's going to have a lot of problems trying to migrate or
travel to any foreign country and frankly you know we've seen that
before okay when he was in Hong Kong he was going to take a flight to
some other country okay and I can't remember which one that is right
now but he was diverted to Russia okay the US government also revoked
believe so there again we see the problems he has with traveling to
other countries all right...
DiCocco pretends to scry "travel problems" from the astrology, but
he's already seen it happening in the news.
"... now speaking of
health and death okay I can
tell you right now that it certainly will not be pretty not at all okay
and I say that because the ruler of his eighth house of death
all right...in most of the cases I've seen when you have an outer
planet as the
ruler of the eighth house of death and it's retrograde you can expect
the death to not be so peaceful okay and we know that Snowden's death
won't be a pleasant one...
DiCocco states he's studied lots of "deaths" and seen this aspect
But he gives no examples. In fact a great many deaths occur without any
big 8th House factors going on.
"...Pluto in this case
indicates trauma especially when combined with
Saturn okay right over here ... his health and death are very
much intertwined here in a particularly nasty way...we know that a
traumatic death is expected for him and
his death might be prolonged or protracted, okay. It certainly won't
happen like that instantaneously...and I say that
because...retrograde Saturn really slows
things down big time ,ok...we can see an extended death of a
Here DiCocco speaks out of both sides of his mouth, saying that his
death would be "traumatic" but it also "might be
prolonged or protracted"
These two ideas are contradictory. Below DiCocco says Snowden might be "executed,"
which we think of as a rapid death. So DiCocco is all over
the place, trying to cover all
bases so he can't be wrong.
death will be due to some kind of secret work duties some kind of
undercover work that he's engaging in and obviously we know that he's
doing that ok all of his hacking endeavors and intelligence leaks will
undoubtedly do him in...his health will also undergo a huge sudden
change... so you got to
think of a huge ...unexpected Uranus change in health and this health
change will be very mentally draining on him...
has long been noted as looking poorly, with dark around
So DiCocco is simply observing obvious things from photos of
Snowden then posing as if he's astrologically scrying this.
...automatically I think
of torture and intense interrogation alright
and usually with torture and interrogation you are very emotionally traumatized okay your
entire mental and emotional well-being
takes a huge hit and it's no wonder that this will occur to Snowden...
we have DiCocco doing his favorite thing:
Predicting ill things,
and probably asserting the things he
personally wants to be true,
for political and propaganda reasons.
...his emotional health
is a huge risk here big time and
we know that his emotions will come under attack from an
interrogation because his moon is ...he will be interrogated and
undergo extreme emotional trauma by a government agency in a
behind-the-scenes environment...you can expect his
body to undergo some kind of trauma...so
this can indicate that there will be a military manhunt ...we know that
a military organization of sorts or an intelligence agency having
military capabilities will certainly be after him okay whether
that's the CIA bi or KGB who knows because we also have to keep in mind
that he's not safe in Russia either and we know this will be over an
intelligence issue ... his death will occur very much behind
the scenes and will be shielded from the public eye... he
will clearly undergo tremendous trauma from a secret intelligence
agency ...will it be a government entity absolutely...we know
death will be of a very creative and secretive nature...
DiCocco is predicting things that will happen "behind the scenes" and
"shielded from the public eye." This gives safety to DiCocco.
We can't ever really know. He can't
ever be proved
going to be taken out in a very creative fashion probably completely
taking him by surprise..."
kind of death for Snowden. And it
sounds like he has MOSSAD in mind. In some parts of his rambling video
he states Snowden's death will be
health related: "his health and death are very much
will be "prolonged" and "protracted." But elsewhere he says it will be
by "trauma," a "surprise"; he will be
"taken out," and below, 'maybe executed.' He states all possibilities
hoping he therefore can't come out wrong. In reality these are just
DiCocco making death wishes for Snowden,
because he doesn't like Snowden. What's actually happening here -- and
this applies to much of DiCocco's
dreck -- is that he is visualizing and projecting death ideas on
Snowden in as
many ways as possible, for window dressing throwing around
justifications, but mainly hoping his negative affirmations will make
Keep in mind that DiCocco, the Tarot Card Reader, has long been
interested in occultism and witchy
techniques. He is really trying to lodge these statements against
Snowden as a
curse in the ether. It sounds like DiCocco is dreaming of Israel's
MOSSAD throughout this
video. Astrologer Julian Lee has maintained that DiCocco is an ethnic
Jew, has the look and sound, and has had a brew of ethnic Jews
Israelis as Facebook fans, and
that he is using astrology as a psy-op and for propaganda
advantages to Israel. Notice that he has painted Snowden as
"dastardly," though many consider
him a hero. DiCocco's Jewishness would explain his animus toward
many of Snowden's leaks put Israel
in a negative light. Just one headline: "Edward Snowden leaked NSA
documents show U.S., Israel created Islamic State." This
would also explain his extreme animus toward astrologer Julian Lee
and the many vile things DiCocco says about him: Mr. Lee has long
openly critiqued Jewish power and Jewish collective
easy when the time
comes for this secret government agency to interrogate him harshly okay
maybe even to the point of execution...he's not going to go
down easily okay this [factor] gives
him a tremendous amount of stamina both of body and mind...
we've jumped from "slow/protracted" to
"execution. He covers every base. DiCocco also contradicts
himself first saying that Snowden would
be ill and be emotionally disturbed: "you
are very emotionally traumatized okay your
entire mental and emotional well-being
takes a huge hit." But now he is saying "he
won't die easily because he'll have great
stamina. Again, DiCocco seems to be dreaming of MOSSAD.
go down fighting that's for sure and just to
put the icing on the cake
here again we can see
his body and mind taking such a traumatic
blow ...this is really going to be something else, a huge
event carried on
behind the scenes...
course none of us will be able to know whether it was "something else,"
since it will take place in "secret" and "behind the scenes."
"Let's all stay tuned
over the next four years to
see what Trump will do
when it comes to Snowden as well as with Russia......with all the
about Russian hacking these days you can
be assured that Snowden will be put in the
spotlight once again soon...That's all
folks I hope
you found this video to be both highly
educational and astrologically informative..."
It didn't happen: There was no soon-to-come spotlight on Snowden.
The rest of what DiCocco says in this video are contradictory
or descriptions of conditions the public already knows.
DiCocco Fail #5

to take place in
"late December 2016 to
early January 2017.
His phrase suggested significant aggression from
or at least a major terrorist event such as a serious bomb,
and was attended by gravity and portentous music. "Breaking News!"
The only thing DiCocco could point to was one more lone gunman incident,
common nowadays, a Jan. 6 Fort Lauderdale shooting that took

States and the world at large." It would "unfold" like a major event.
The shooter-of-five was an American, and it's
already forgotten today. DiCocco
insisted that this common event fulfilled his
exaggerated, dramatically worded prediction. (Even
though he was "four days off.") Likely, Chicago alone had more
shootings that day. In the following posts from that thread,
DiCocco is seen spinning that
common event as validation. He digs himself in deeper to his mess by
telling us to "expect a higher

anything? Nobody can disprove whether a "higher probability"
didn't. The "cosmos" was too shy to say: "There will be
more of these events." Or even "Expect more." And
there was no increase. This site tracking shootings shows that
January, Feb, and March were very average months for shootings. Where's

no other shooting with five or more deaths took place.
a foil star for a double-fail.
It may be noted that the alleged Steven Paddock/Las Vegas shooting was
not predicted by DiCocco. Yet it would better fit a significant "attack
on American soil." But
alas, the vast majority of major national events that took place in
2017 were somehow missed by the 'world's only real astrologer' and
'voice of the cosmos."
DiCocco made dire predictions that the US navy would
suffer a serious attack
and he specified the dates of April 11 and 12 as the most likely

proved greatness as an astrologer. Trump
had huge crowds and Hillary was always falling over, and other
astrologers predicted it before him. For example Astrologer Julian Lee,
who helped DiCocco overcome his job
troubles and who DiCocco continually attacks, predicted a Trump win
back in July 2016. So did a few others.
DiCocco's late-in-the-game prediction, using garden variety
astrological guesswork, is

DiCocco has been accused of foraging for other astrologers'
ideas and statements,
then presenting them as his own. This is mentioned in this blog. Julian Lee
has heard DiCocco taking phrases
and ideas that Lee presented in his reading to DiCocco,
presenting them as his
knowledge on the internet.
In the statement above DiCocco says "Astrologers know that the
quincunx is a lottt worse than a square."
One more bare assertion and fabrication. It would be hard to
find such a statement in astrological literature. What he's doing is
trying to quote Julian Lee
fro his reading, not anything generally agreed by astrologers. Then he

ultimate lying aspect" o

no basis out of his ass. Recently DiCocco appears to have copycatted
other astrologers to make a
prediction about the French election. After
two other astrologers predicted Marine Le Penn would win, DiCocco
mocked and abused them. A week later, with round #1 a few days away and
Le Pen polling high,
DiCocco shamelessly jumped on the bandwagon and also predicted
a Le Pen win.
This copycatting is even apparent in his failed "attack on American
YouTube commenters pointed out that another YouTube astrologer made a
similar prediction prior to his; he was purloining her stuff. At that time
DiCocco acknowledged it in posts (since deleted) where he groused that another astrologer might have
"misled" him. So the "cosmos" had to copy another astrologer whose prediction ended
up a bust. These posts on the "attack" thread, not yet deleted, refer to DiCocco's
copycat attempts at divination:
